And once you're feeling happy and relaxed, try your hand at one of the many exciting water sports on offer in this friendly destination....
Located on the eastern tip of southern Cyprus, Protaras is just minutes away from party town Ayia Napa. Don't be fooled, though: this resort rocks to an altogether smoother beat, attracting families, couples and groups who don't need thumping nightclubs but do appreciate some good bars and places to chill out with a few drinks when night falls.
In fact, tourists of all kinds flock to this pretty area, which is dotted with windmills and blessed with glorious beaches. And with plenty of sunshine, Protaras holidays are ideal for those looking for a healthy dose of sun, sea and sand - with a warm welcome thrown in.
Water sports are big in Protaras too, though, so be sure to pack your sense of adventure alongside your sunglasses, sun cream and a good holiday read. You can find a range of water sports suitable for enthusiasts of most ages on the beach. But as the crystal-clear waters are gentle close to the beach in Fig Tree Bay and at Pernera Beach, even the littlest members of the family can splash about and have fun in a safe environment.
Protaras is reached via flights into Larnaca International Airport (LCA), which is about four hours by plane from the UK. When you get there, you could opt for self-catering apartments or splash out on an all-inclusive stay - either way, accommodation in Protaras is generally of a high standard and you're unlikely to be disappointed. Just remember that, despite being more expensive initially, all-inclusive deals can prove a great way to keep a tight hold on the budget while you are away.
